Todd Greenberg threatens to take NRL grand final interstate if Labor abandons stadium rebuildNRL CEO Todd Greenberg has

Post by TheDaBoss » Tue 27 Nov, 2018 8:48 pm

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg has warned Sydney risk losing hosting rights for the grand final, if Labor chooses to scrap the stadium plans for Moore Park.
Multimple media outlets inluding The Daily Telegraph and the Brisbane Times revealed NSW Opposition leader, ­Michael Daley’s pledge that if elected his Government would refuse to fund a $730 million ­rebuild of Sydney Football Stadium at Moore Park and redirect the funds to schools and hospitals.

Such a move would void an exclusive NRL Memorandum of Understanding with the NSW Government to play grand finals in Sydney for the next 25 years.

A frustrated NRL chief executive CEO Todd Greenberg said if Allianz Stadium was not rebuilt, the agreement to play grand finals in Sydney would be compromised.

“We would have the option to take the grand final to other states,” Greenberg said.

“We want this stadiums agreement to proceed.

“We have already had strong interest from other states wanting to host the grand final.

“Our strong preference is to see the new stadiums built and to keep the grand final in NSW but clearly if the MoU is not honoured we have to consider all options.”

Premiership deciders in rugby league have been played in Sydney since grand finals were introduced with the only exception being the 1997 Super League grand final in Brisbane.

The cost of the rebuild without government assistance would effectively send the SCG Trust broke.

The NRL’s Memorandum of Understanding requires new stadiums at Moore Park and Western Sydney and an upgrade of Sydney Olympic Park.

In return, the NRL agreed to play a grand final and State of Origin match in Sydney until 2042.

If Labor pulls the funding then State of Origin games in Sydney also risk being moved interstate.

To be honest putting the funds into hospitals and schools is far more important than rebuilding sports facilities that are not oldTo put it in poker terms greenberg is holding 2-7 offsuit and going all in pre flop

Yes yes, Northern Beaches Hospital a shining example of how to spend the tax-payer dollar well.

There is scope to fix / modify / renovate / rebuild stadia, especially if there is positive financial outcome from it. Events like State of Origina and Grand Final bring a lot of revenue to states, hence why places like Melbourne lobby to get a turn.

Also relative values - proposed upgrade of Stadia is what, $1.5B ($800M ANZ refurb, $700M SFS rebuild)? The health budget for NSW in 2018 is $25B. The new metros NW and SW total $12.5B investment. The light rail to Randwick and Kingsford - $2.2B. The new ICC - $1.5B (part of $3.4B total Darling Harbour revamp).

Thanks for the figures. The hype around the money spent on these stadiums is ridiculous.

Greenburg should look at his backyard first. The rampant CAP cheating by so many NRL clubs goes unnoticed while he plays political grandstanding. He should be sacked .

So 25b to service 8m people and 2.5b for 3 stadiums to service 150k people. Sounds like Labour will pull the plug on Allianz.
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

25b a year on health. 2.5b on stadiums that should last 30 years and make money for the govt.
25b x 30 years is 875b on health over the lifetime of the stadiums.
875b v 2.5b.

Agreed. Also public hospitals barely generate any revenues - they are money pits. Totally worthwhile, totally necessary money pits.

Stadiums generate revenue, so there is some return on the investment.

Gladys looks like losing what she wanted to be a monument to her Govt, I’d rather see the money spent on other things that helps the whole community.
One new stadium is enough
If Greenberg tries to take the GF, as well as Origin out of the state( any more than it is now proposed); there’ll be a hell of a stink.

He looks like having egg all over his face

I don’t see the need for a rebuilt Allianz, especially from the NRL’s point of view. The only games that are regularly played their are Roosters home games and the ANZAC day game (which doubles as a roosters home game every other year).

The need to knock down and rebuild Allianz was a con job by the SCG Trust IMO
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

Just a comment that Labour will pull the plug to help win the election on votes. Dont really care each way, but would love to see the Rorters take a hit.

Agreed. We don't need more stadiums but we do need better hospital facilities. Take a walk through the children's oncology ward at POW Hospital and see what kids have to put up with. Greenberg is a lightweight and a disgrace. Threatening Government is dumb.

Mr Daley the Labor builder of infrastructure...wait he was roads minister for years and years :roll ..if you live in Sydney you certainly seen what Mr Daley and the Labor party built . Thank you Gladys for the vision and will to build the infrastructure that was run into the ground by successive Labor governments. Think what you want about the present government of NSW but they are having a big go into fixing 20 years of Labor in NSW doing nothing!

And why are these hospitals like this! do you think this has just happened this takes decades of poor spending on infrastructure who has been the one party that has been in power the most over the last 30 years !please give me a break ..build the stadiums to generate one billion dollars in revenue per year which then is poured back into schools and hospitals but then that is not socialism!
